      London and New York Macmillian and Co. 1892 - SCARCE DELUXE LARGE PAPER COPY. First issue thus of the third edition. With over sixty delightful illustrations by Hugh Thomson. Crown 8vo, in a beautiful deluxe binding by one of the important London binders for HatchardÕs of full green morocco, the boards ruled in gilt, the spine beautifully decorated in arts-and-crafts style in an elaborate floral motif in compartments between tall raised bands, two compartments with stylized lettering in gilt, gilt turn-ins and board edges, fine softly marbled endpapers, t.e.g, green silk ribbon marker bound in. ix, 110 pp. Internally a fine, bright copy with just a bit of foxing to the prelims only as is almost always the case, and a few very minor light spots throughout. The binding very handsome and solid, but with some minor faint stains to the boards and some wear to the leather along the hinges and extremities. SCARCE LARGE PAPER COPY IN DELUXE FULL MOROCCO PRODUCED FOR HATCHARDÕS BY ONE OF THE IMPORTANT LONDON BINDERS. This Òhumorous month in the countrysideÓ contains some of ThomsonÕs most delightful and saucy works. Sir Roger de Coverley was the fictitious English squire of Queen Anne's reign who was one of the SpectatorÕs most popular characters. His lovable, yet utterly ridiculous, personality gave Thomson opportunity to unleash his full whimsey in what is unquestionably the most humorous of his illustrated works. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
